Hurricane Wilma October 24
By  | 

Hurricane Wilma has weakened to a Category Two storm, with winds of 110 miles an hour, as it races across Florida.

It came ashore this morning south of Naples as a Category-Three storm, and as Florida's eighth hurricane in 15 months.

At least one death in Florida is blamed on the storm.

Large sections of Key West and other areas are flooded, and hundreds of thousands are without power.

The storm caused heavy damage over the weekend to resort towns along Mexico's Yucatan Coast. In Cancun, troops and federal police are trying to control looting at stores and shopping center. Mexicans and stranded tourists are dealing with hunger and frustration.

Wilma has also brought huge waves to Havana, Cuba, where neighborhoods up to four blocks inland have as much as three feet
of water.
